Notes from the Health Room

Great Beginnings as well as the entire Lees Summit community have seen an increase in cases of pink eye. Symptoms of pink eye are redness, itching, pain and drainage from the eye(s). Pink eye is spread by touching secretions from the eyes, nose, mouth or surfaces that have come into contact with these secretions. The best ways to prevent pink eye are to use good hand washing, cover with a tissue or elbow when sneezing, avoid touching the eyes and face, and do not share anything that touches the eyes including towels and washcloths. If your child has pink eye symptoms, please take him or her to your healthcare provider and stay home from school until he/she has been treated for 24 hours and there is no more drainage from the eye. If symptoms include sensitivity to light and continual weeping from the eye, please see your eye care specialist. For any questions, please call your school nurse Alicia Stremick, RN at 816-986-2462.
